The Man Mart: 6 floors, where women shop for men
This is not original, but author unknown, I thought it was worth repeating.
2 rules for shopping there 1) you must be a woman to shop there 2) you must relinquish all traits and all men you give up as you ascend to the next floor
floor 1) Woman walks in. All men have jobs on this floor. "Having a job is important," she says to herself, "But I need more." She gives up her man with a job.
floor 2) Woman walks in. All men here have jobs AND help around the house. "Wow, now that's important, too. But I have to have more." She gives up her man with a job who helps around the house.
floor 3) Woman walks in. All men on this floor have a job, help around the house AND love children. "Oh yes. He MUST love children. But if it only gets better on each floor, I've GOT to see what's on floor #4." She gives up her man with a job who helps around the house and loves children.
floor 4) Woman walks in. All men on this floor have jobs, help around the house, love children AND are extremely good looking. "Well that's a bonus, but a GREAT bonus. But what if..."She gives up her man with a job who helps around the house, loves children and is extremely good looking.
floor 5) Woman walks in, full of anticipation. If 4 floors held that kind of promise, what is to be found here? She finds men who have jobs, help around the house, love children, are extremely good looking, AND are ROMANTIC!!! "O....M....G....this can't be TRUE! But if this is the 5th floor man, WHAT'S...ON...THE 6TH...FLOOR???!!!" She gives up her man with a job who helps around the house who loves children who is extremely good looking who is also romantic to ascend to the 6th floor.
floor 6) The elevator doors open. There is not a soul there except herself and huge neon sign flashing "You are the 10 trillionth visitor to this floor. This floor exists only to prove to men you cannot please a woman."
I'd like to say I'd have taken the 5th or even the 4th floor man, but they're right. We as women have a tendency to be THAT picky. Sorry guys.
